Of Joel and Sam Tomkins on Wigan Today both should be sacked for abusing a young girl like that.

Posted by: admin (313) Report abuse
I wonder what the 'Old players' like Billy B. think about all this recent behaviour? The name of a once, proud, upstanding, club dragged through the dirt by, Thugs, Druggies and Women abusers. No excuse that they were drunk. I have always advocated that when people make excuses about their behaviour "Because I was Drunk" Rubbish when you are drunk your true character emerges. Sack them both.
Not be available for 4 weeks? does that mean he won't be getting paid?

Joel has been fined £10,000 and suspended for at least 4 weeks and Sam fined £5,000. I wonder if the bar staff see any of the money.

From what I have seen from rugby players and ex rugby players, this is par for the course.

Don't get too hung up.

Fine the pair plonkers, sack um, if they can manage bout, and move on.

I suppose they could look to Jason Puncheon. the Crystal Palace captain, who was in court today and the hundreds of other footballers who act as though they are untouchable. There is no excuse for the Tomkins behaviour and Joel should have been sacked IMO but don't give us all that tripe about being par for the course. Thousands of Rugby players were home and behaving themselves that night.

It isn't the first time that he has behaved like that.

If these two were footballers, their feet wouldn't touch.

Two failed rugby stars on the road to ruin.

Sadly, I feel sorry for Joel. There was a pathetic child like sadness about him.

They both blew it.

Although he scored one of the best tries at Wembley it turned out to be his downfall...sad really..went to union..came back overweight and slower so wigan signed him...he would be so frustrated..but should have had the self discipline and professionalism to get through it

Green Vigo was the worst ever example always in the pubs in Wigan and wanted to fight anyone.

admin..although I don't condone the Tomkins' behaviour by any means I'm sure players in the past have had their silly moments too. The difference today is that everything is caught on camera for all to see

second video

Posted by: kathpressey (4468)  Report abuse
why would Sam release the second video? is he on a death wish?

Posted by: wigvet (3310) Report abuse
because he paid a grand 'hush-hush' money for it and has now decided to 'come clean'

So Clarke and Francis had nowt to do with Vigo then peterg. They put him on the rocky road and the ale did the rest

Posted by: ahcawntspeyk (5770) Report abuse
They got a lot of others on the booze!.... But they didn't end up like tossers like Green

Posted by: upthetims (6447) Report abuse

Link to wigvetís news; Tomkins

I once saw Vigo ask a chap for a light and he lent him his lighter. He lit his fag then put the lighter in his pocket, When he asked for it back Vigo said if you want it back you'll have to fight me for it so he lost it. That was in the Brickies by the side of the Crofters. I don't know about Colin Clarke or Bill Francis being on the pop. UTT.

See they have signed Joe Greenwood to replace Tomkins immediately on a 42 month deal.

Posted by: roylew (2727) Report abuse
Didnít Saints sign Greenwood from Wigan

Posted by: broady (13225)   Report abuse
Donít think so. He went to Saints from Saddleworth Rangers. His brother James was at Wigan but moved to Hull KR.

Posted by: wigvet (3310) Report abuse
yes he's an Oldham lad broady - I liked the look of him at Saints - confirmed by Phil Wilkinson that Bateman off at end of season though

Posted by: broady (13225)   Report abuse
I think that has been on the cards a while. There was a rumour about Sam Burgess at one time, have you heard anything Wigvet?

Posted by: roylew (2727) Report abuse
Guess who was with the Tomkins brothers in little fifteens on that memorable night

Posted by: broady (13225)   Report abuse
Errr. I can feel the glee in your post so I think I know who you are referring to.
